Do your part to stop the spread of #COVID19 in PA—wear a mask, stay 6 feet away from others, and wash your hands often.
#maskuppa https://www.facebook.com/CDC/photos/a.184668026025/10158436951331026

Wear a mask in public to help slow the spread of COVID-19 but be sure to wear it the right way. Position your mask so that it covers your nose and mouth. Do not wear on your chin or under your nose. If you’re not wearing your mask properly, virus particles can spread.

Learn more about the dos and don’ts of masking: https://bit.ly/30QOzQF.
